There are VIP tickets available for $25 on Saturday and $20 on Sunday that offers guaranteed seats with a special viewing section. Ticket admission includes the music, block party and the arts and crafts fair.

The festival will take place at the new Charles R Wood Park in the West Brook enviro-park project on Beach Road in Lake George. The park offers 2.5 acres of festival space out of the 12.5 acre park with big plans for the rest of the area such as a playground, skate park, water feature and environmental interpretive area. The event will raise funds and awareness for S.A.V.E. (Stop Aquatic inVasives from Entering) LAKE GEORGE- a partnership which was created in hopes of removing an invasive species that is currently threatening the lake.
